Health Challenge

Mackay Hospital and Health Service's Let's Shape Up campaign has challenged the CQ Hospital and Health Service's 10,000 Lives campaign to see who can collectively achieve the most weight and waist girth loss.

This Challenge is about celebrating the goals of participants who are aiming to lead a healthier lifestyle one step at a time.
